Hi,
I was wondering how a person convert an object to a string. I've tried casting, but it doesn't work. I'm calling a function from a java file that I wrote. It returns a string, but I can't say "String kevin = newName;", it doesn't work. What can I do? TIA.

Hi,
every class you create is derived from the class Object, the class Object has a method toString(). So therefore once you create an instance of that class you can call the toString() method. Here's an example, hope this helps.

It should work just fine. You may need to provide more detail if it still does not work.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
